Watch These Movies on Netflix Before It’s Too Late!
Hurry! As of March 1, these are some movies that are going off of Netflix streaming. Of course they will be adding some new titles, but you'll want to catch these ones while you can. Below are my top pics, but check out the full list of what's going in March (and what's coming) by clicking here.
WHAT'S IN THE BOX!? If you haven't seen Seven, you should. One of the best serial killer crime stories ever. Even though Brad Pitt is super-cute, and Morgan Freeman is genius, this is not for the faint of heart. But if you love a great twisty crime flick, this is your movie.
This Oscar-winning classic is classic for a reason. One of the best soundtracks of all time featuring songs written for the movie by Simon and Garkunkl (if you don't know who they are, ask your parents or Google it). Stuck in the "what am I going to do with my life" haze after college, the movie follows Ben as he fumbles through life, lust, and true love. One of the best endings of all time. Watch or re-watch it.
Beverly Hills, what a thrill! This super-cute and underrated film from '89 will be a hit with your daughters (and us old girls will re-live the glory of our youth). It's sweet, fun, and will have you rooting for the underdogs of Beverly Hills. 80s movie gold!
If you haven't seen this, you haven't lived! Ok, it's not THAT good, but it's pretty awesome. One of those great kid adventure movies that the whole family will love. Another 80s classic that you have to see, or watch again!
What to hear the most annoying sound in the world?? Well you will when you watch this movie, and you'll laugh your booty off! There have been sequels and prequels but nothing beats this original ridiculous buddy comedy. Pretty much everyone who has seen this movie has at least 10 quotes they can bust out at a moment's notice. Watch, watch again. Enjoy!
In my opinion, this is the best of the Robocops. Robocop's dealing with drug dealers in Detroit's underbelly. The story action are better than the first, and it's an action movie that's not as over the top as action movies tend to get. Well, at parts it is, but if you dig action movies, you'll dig this.
Oscar winner for Best Picture, and Best Supporting Actor, Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay, this is an amazing flick. Ordinary People has gotten lost in the years of Oscar winners, and that's a shame because it's really good. One of the first films to really deal with mental illness in an insightful way. It's a tear-jerker, but fantastic. Watch it before Netflix takes it down. ABSOLUTELY a great movie!
My best friend and I saw this in the theater and couldn't stop crying at the end. You may or may not have the same reaction, but this movie shows an amazing friendship that is put up to an EPIC challenge. Two American girls travel to Thailand after high school graduation and land in jail on drug charges. In a system they don't understand, and can't get out of, they are put to the test. The best thing about this movie, is not only seeing the girls adapt to their harsh new surroundings, but the suspense of trying to figure out how they really got thrown in jail, and how they're going to get out. An amazing 90s soundtrack accompanies this movie. Check it out, and if you're a movie crier like me, grab the tissues.
Groundbreaking in the way that it was filmed and marketed, this horror film set a new standard for scary movies. If you saw it (like I did) before you knew much about it, it scared the pants off of you. Without relying on blood and gore, it was (is) an inspired way to make a movie: by giving you just enough to make your imagination freak you out. Watch it for the first time totally in the dark, or watch it again to see if it holds up. Just do it before March 1.
John Hughes really knew how to capture teens in the 80s. This may be the best of his films (Hughes-heads will argue this forever). It's kind of a take on Cinderella in that the girl from the wrong side of the tracks catches the eye of a yuppie prince with money. In their quest to be together they get trouble from both of their groups of friends. Love, loss, coming of age, and one of the most epic movie prom scenes of all time. If you haven't seen this, we can't be friends. Seriously, go home and watch this right now!
